M1936 Pistol Belt

  • Specification
  • MIL-B-1107
The cotton M1936 belt featured a single female snap fastener that was used to attach reciprocal pouches, such as the M1923 and M1 Carbine ammunition pockets. Like most pistol belts it had three rows of eyelets. The lower row was for attaching double-hook fixture equipment, the middle row for adjusting the waist size and the upper row accommodated suspender snaps. During the Vietnam War, Marines often clipped the M1941 suspenders to the M1936 belt, whilst early Army advisors typically attached the M1945 suspenders.
